KUPPET branch makes history

The Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET), has made history at its Kirinyaga County Branch after re-electing the Executive Secretary for four continuous terms.

Njogu Mbui was yesterday given a fresh five year term by the teachers during the branch elections held at the Rosé-Park Hotel in Kutus town yesterday.

The peaceful elections which saw the entire branch Executive voted back unopposed were presided over by the area  Labour Office , led by Mr Peter  Mutema.

Mbui who has been at the branch helm since 2006 was described as an able  leader who strictly observes  the rule  of law and  good governance.

“Since Mbui took over the branch office in 2006, he has continued to navigate the ship even during turbulent times   without taking sides or discriminating any of the members, “said a member Andrew Nthiga Mugo.

And to prove this point further Mugo added “the teachers have voted back the entire branch Executive un-opposed   so that this able team can continue serving our interests in the next five years,”.

Among those re-elected  were the branch Chairman Kinyua Mwai ,Treasurer  Samuel Mwangi, Zablon Muchiri the Assistant Secretary , Muchiri Kamau, Vice Chairman, hike Catherine Muchira  retained her position of the Assistant Treasurer .

Others re-elected were the Secretary for Gender Rosalind Gachoki, Virginia  Murage the   Secretary for Secondary, Gakono Nyaga the   Secretary for Tertiary    while Mathew Njue remains the Organising Secretary.

The KUPPET National Treasure  Njenga Mwethi  was  at the venue as an observer during the day  long  peaceful event  who also gave a clean bill of health on the exercise .

The branch will therefore send ten delegates who  will take part in the elections of the  National Executive Board   scheduled for  this April  in Nairobi City County .
